TMS Therapy

Transcranial magnetic stimulation, commonly known as TMS, is a tried-and-true noninvasive treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and other mental health conditions that has been utilized without medication for over 40 years. Using fields of electromagnetic pulses, similar to an MRI, TMS therapy targets and stimulates specific regions of the brain that are underactive in individuals with these conditions, providing a safe and effective supervised brain healing. The stimulation helps develop new neural pathways, allowing patients to overcome any unpleasant symptoms they are experiencing in relation to their depression, anxiety, or mental health disorders. At Serenity, we embody a patient-first philosophy, ensuring that each patient receives comprehensive and personalized care. We understand that conditions such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and PTSD are challenging to cope with and that prescription medication may not always be the proper solution. After meeting with you to discuss your unique needs, we will review potential treatment options and discuss how TMS therapy may be an effective option.

What Seperates TMS at Serenity

Our mission is to remove barriers for patients, making healing more accessible and straightforward. As part of this mission, we ensure TMS therapy sessions are peaceful and positive. During each session, the patient will sit comfortably in a chair while we perform TMS therapy. The particular areas of the brain involved in mood regulation and emotional well-being will be targeted by the device. The procedure is noninvasive, meaning no surgery, anesthesia, or any form of sedation is required.

After completing a TMS therapy treatment, many patients report a significant reduction in symptoms of depression or anxiety. The effects of TMS can be felt within a few weeks of starting treatment, with some patients experiencing improvements earlier. Commonly reported outcomes include enhanced mood, better concentration, increased energy levels, and an overall improvement in daily functioning. It's important to note that individual results can vary; some may experience substantial relief, while others may have more subtle changes. Regular follow-up sessions may be necessary to maintain the benefits, and we will monitor progress closely to make any needed adjustments to the treatment plan.

  • Noninvasive and Painless: TMS is an outpatient procedure that does not require surgery or anesthesia, allowing patients to relax during the procedure and get back to work or their normal everyday activities.
  • Evidence-Based: Numerous studies validate the effectiveness of TMS treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and other mental health conditions.
  • Safe with Minimal Side Effects: Most of our patients experience little to no side effects from TMS therapy. Those who do often report brief headaches that can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
  • Tailored Approach: Serenity Mental Health Centers focuses on what works best for the patient, ensuring each treatment plan and TMS session aligns with the individual's needs.

Extremely educated about Ketamine therapy. My depression symptoms improved, despite the exorbitant cost.

Dr. Clay has given me my life, family, and friends back to me. When I first started seeing Dr. Clay, I was so depressed and anxious that I didn’t go out of the house. Dr. Clay’s medical assistant on my first appointment told me that he would never give up on me and he never has. Flash forward to now, and I’m seeing my friends, family, going out to run errands on my own, and even going to see my beloved sister in Colorado March 1st with our daughter. I am SO thankful for Dr. Clay and his team at Serenity Mental Health. They are a huge blessing and I feel so lucky to have found them!

My psychiatrist is named Dr. Colvin and he is an excellent person to count on for aid with mental health. He has prescribed medicine for me that has worked wonders in my life, and he continues to meet my concerns by providing more medication when needed. Alongside him, the staff is extremely flexible with their availability, and whenever I’ve needed to change a date on the calendar for appointments, they have been swift and generous to meet those needs as well. I’d recommend Serenity to anyone that is struggling to battle the demons in their head; they have changed my life and I know they will do the same for you as well.

Candidates for TMS therapy typically include individuals who have not responded to traditional pharmacological treatments for depression, anxiety, or other mood disorders. It is particularly beneficial for those with treatment-resistant conditions, where conventional therapies have failed to produce satisfactory results. Ideal candidates should have a confirmed diagnosis of a mood disorder from a medical professional and no contraindications for magnetic therapy, such as metal implants in the head or certain medical devices. TMS offers a noninvasive alternative that can provide relief without the side effects commonly associated with medication, making it a viable option for patients seeking a different approach to mental health management.

Are there side effects to TMS therapy?

As with most treatments, there could be certain side effects with TMS therapy. You may experience minor headaches, pain at the simulation site, and muscle twitching after treatment. This should not last long, however, and will go away on its own. TMS therapy is known to be a very safe and effective treatment method.

How effective is TMS therapy?

The results speak for themselves: 75% of individuals who opt for TMS treatment experience significant relief from their symptoms with 51% reaching symptom remission – a truly remarkable success rate.

How does TMS therapy work?

You've likely realized that when you're depressed, you have less energy. But also, your brain cells, which distribute serotonin and dopamine, are tired, too. TMS therapy is used to give these cells more energy, which allows more efficient serotonin and dopamine delivery. TMS therapy is the most studied mental health treatment in the world, and we are proud to offer it to our patients.
